Played the FF series? Yes? Then you shoul know about those maps on the corner that display your position! Wanna make one? I will tell you how!



Reqirements:

-Variables Knowledge.

-Pictures Knowledge.

-Your World Map MUST be 100x100!!! Nothing more, nothing less!

-A image program (I rocommend ULEAD Photo Express)



Step 1: Making the map picture.

Go to your world map and put it in the minimun zoom: 1/8. Press print screen. Go to an image program and paste it. Cut the part that the map is in. Change the size to 100x100 and to a 256 colors BMP or PNG. Save in your game folder.



Step 2: Making the pointer picture.

That´s the little point that shows your hero position. Make it 5x5, with a color that can be seen in the map.



Step 3: The coding (BOOM!!! Here´s the hard part!!! Joking, it´s not hard...).

make this coding on a parallel procces event in your world map...

Show Picture: 1, map, (50, 50)-----make it 50% transparent.

Change Variable: [xxxx:hero x]Set, hero x pos

Change Variable: [xxxx:hero y]Set, hero y pos

Show Picture: 2, pointer, (v[xxxx], v[xxxx])-----here put the variables you used for x and y coordinates...



Step 4: The Ending.

Don´t forget to erase pictures 1 & 2 when you enter a town, dungeon, etc. Also be SURE your world map is 100x100!



You finished! Hope ya like it!
